Barack Obama, our next President

I said the pipeline was not approved because the environmental studies were not completed.
You had a fit & called me f*cking stupid & posted a link to an EIR report being completed.
I then said that was for the old route & Since that report the route was changed.
I can't believe you are still pushing your lies on this.

The Keystone Pipeline has not been approved because it is competition for Warren Buffett's BNSF Railway.

It was important to educate dem on the meaning of a mandate when he was obviously a bit confused.
Yes, Obama won. But it was a lot closer than most of you want to admit. That is not a mandate. In fact, it only proves the country is still very much divided and it is Obama's responsibility and duty to bring us together by representing all of us - not just the selected few who put him over the top.
And it's certainly not a mandate for him to become an even more narcissitic bully.
Speaking of mandates, Bush won the 2004 race with 3.6 million more votes than Kerry.

Obama recieved 5 million more votes than Rmoney.

Put another way,Obama recieved 5 million more votes in 2012 than Bush had in 2004!!

65 Million for Obama's mandate.

59.2 million for Bush's mandate.

Kerry recieved 55.7 million votes. The margin for Bush was 3.6 million votes.

Yet Bush claimed a mandate.

"CNN host Tucker Carlson, co-host of CNN's Crossfire: "[N]obody has done it since 1988. The president wins reelection with a majority of the vote. It is a mandate. What will he do with it now?[CNN, Crossfire, 11/3/04]"

Funny how your side measures mandates!!

Obama beat Rmoney by 5 million votes, recieved more votes than Bush vs Kerry.

If Bush had a mandate, as he claimed, Obama has a double mandate!!

You're not very good at this, ya know.

You look stupid when you claim Obama didn't win a mandate.

Denver won more playoff games last year with Tim Tebow playing quarterback.

Manning is a great quarterback, but Denver was a good team to begin with.

No. The nitwits can slow it down until the midterms.

With House ratings of 11%, a Democratic takeover will be easy.

If racists like you turn out, all the better

After that, it'll be all Obama, allthe time!!

As for Fidel, so will you be dead by 2016.

What's your point??

Obama did not approve the pipeline because the environmental studies were not yet complete.

He did approve the southern part. Texans are madder than Hell because most of the labor is not local & most of the pipe is not US made.

When the studies are complete & all is OK, the pipeline would likely be approved.

You people are so funny how you make up sh*t.

Yep, lets build a pipeline so Canada can get their oil to a port. Ever wonder why they didn't build a pipeline across Canada?

Colin Powell: GOP Holds 'Dark Vein Of Intolerance'

""Former Secretary Of State Colin Powell delivered some harsh words for the GOP as a whole on Sunday.

In an appearance on NBC's "Meet The Press," Powell noted that there is a "dark vein of intolerance in some parts of the party."

"What do I mean by that?," he explained. "What I mean by that is they still sort of look down on minorities."

Powell specifically pointed to October 2012 comments by former Alaska Gov. and Vice Presidential nominee Sarah Palin on the attacks in Benghazi, Libya.

"When I see a former governor say that the president is 'shuckin' and jivin'-- that's a racial-era slave term," Powell said, referring to Palin's words on Obama's response.

Powell added that Republicans had become too preoccupied with the candidate-selection process, losing sight of the group's overall message.

"You've got to think first about what's the party actually going to represent," Powell said. "If it's just going to represent the far right wing of the political spectrum, I think the party is in difficulty. I'm a moderate, but I'm still a Republican."

Powell was the first African American to fill the role of Secretary Of State, serving under President George W. Bush from 2001-05. Despite maintaining his allegiance to the Republican Party, Powell has been an ardent supporter for President Barack Obama, giving him a 2008 vote and a 2012 endorsement.

"I think we ought to keep on the track we are on," said Powell in October 2012, commending Obama on the economy and Iraq War.

Top Mitt Romney surrogate John Sununu turned heads after the announcement, suggesting that Powell's Obama endorsement was motivated by race. That statement prompted former Powell Chief Of Staff Lawrence Wilkerson to make Republican-Party comments similar in nature to Powell's Sunday remarks.

My party, unfortunately, is the bastion of those people -- not all of them, but most of them -- who are still basing their positions on race. Let me just be candid: My party is full of racists, and the real reason a considerable portion of my party wants President Obama out of the White House has nothing to do with the content of his character, nothing to do with his competence as commander-in-chief and president, and everything to do with the color of his skin, and that's despicable""

----------

A Republican War Hero sees the intolerance, hatred, and racism within his Party.

While the stupid racists here try to deny it!!

Gotta love it!!

They're doubling down on their racism, after losing an election for it!!

Ask the NAACP that question and every liberal news commentator on television. They should know. They assigned broad attributes to groups with skin color as an excuse to silence the opposition.
Should I go back and count the number of times just me, myself and I was called a racist at the beginning for daring to criticize Obama's presidency? Not to mention every single conservative on here? By every single liberal?
If a black republican won the presidency, do you think that would happen? I can assure you it wouldn't.
What a load
